Addressing the Health Impacts of 9-11

The World Trade Center (WTC) Medical Working Group was appointed by former Mayor Bloomberg from 2007 to 2013 to study and assess the impact of the WTC disaster. The group included representatives from FDNY and NYPD, the city and state health departments, the Health and Hospitals Corporation and Mount Sinai. It published a series of annual reports ending in 2011 summarizing the scientific literature and research recommendations. The WTC Medical Working Group published its last annual report in 2011, after the Zadroga Act became law.
